بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
Peace be unto you
My dear respected brothers and sisters, Allah "God" mentioned in the Quran sura Al Hujuraat, Aya 13 that "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted".
You may ask yourself this question why you are here in this part of the world, even though you may not have thought of this before. The answer is to know each other, to know one another. I would like to thank you all for supporting the Muslim Students Association at Michigan Technological University, as always this association will be the lights that help many Muslim and non-Muslim students to understand the truth of Islam and how this religion is peace.
In the MSA we understand the feeling of being far from your country, missing your beloved family. For that, one of main goals is to support Muslim students, here in Houghton, by creating some gathering events that may make us feel that we aren't alone, there is some people here care about us. As Muslim, you may have some questions, some concerns about living here, MSA as always, will be here to help.
HADITH FROM OUR PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)
A Muslim is a brother of a Muslim. (Bukhari)
